Rogue Trader Episode 4 – Departing Footfall

VeilFitsLibFirstTrybanner

And so we come to the climax of Lord-Captain Schoenerberg’s hunt for a piece of his family’s old legacy. It’s nothing he’s got specific claims over, but as far as the stories go, a ship so full of riches it was gutted to hold more riches . . . well, that’s bound to be worth something, right? Worth a chance to save an ecclessiarchy vessel, a sight seeing trip to a distant system that no one really wants to claim, and a journey to a pair of uninhabitable worlds with some interesting historical details. Oh, also FRIENDSHIP and TEAMWORK in the grim darkness of the far future. It’s worth that, too.

Eclipse Phase – The Thunder and the Whirlwind Episode 4

Having survived the TQZ and PROX-E Ghost’s ministrations, the Firewall team — posing as the Red Devils — successfully robbed the Ashoka 22. In a matter of minutes, they breached the train’s security and thoroughly neutralized its mercenary guards, making off with their cargo.

During the raid, Sam Franklin, ex-Direct Action mercenary, came knife-to-knife with an old friend. Insisting on a ‘man’s fight,’ he held off the majority of the mercenary team while his Firewall compatriots secured their target cargo.

Having completed the first stage of their mission, the Sentinels are being ordered to take some downtime, and stay off the radar while they look into the location of the Red Devils’ homebase. And after all, their favors are coming due.

Rogue Trader Episode 3 – Footfall

Things could have gone worse for the crew of The Brigand’s Lament. They came out of their unexpected detour with a new transport ship to add to the Schoenerberg dynasty and a useful new subordinate: the strange, yet incredibly friendly Xenos girl, Cavianne Omette. No immediate profit is gained, but a substantial investment is had, one that can possibly assist the dynasty very, very well in the future.

The crew continues where they left off, back tracking past the port of Footfall and off for their fabled treasure ship. Except there’s an asteroid belt in their way, and an ecclesiarchy ship nestled amongst the debris, damaged and desperately sending vox transmissions for help–yet never once returning a single attempt at direct communication with Lord-Captain Schoenerberg.

Eclipse Phase – The Thunder and the Whirlwind Episode 3

The Firewall team is going undercover, posing as Jared Dirac and his team of anonymous Red Devil terrorists. They have received an itinerary of sorts, and have already completed the first task; a daring raid on a TITAN infested settlement on the outskirts of the Titan Quarantine Zone.

There, they recovered a strand of dangerous nanotech for the terrorists, and almost lost Griswold Stuart to an attack by the site’s fractal guardians. Having survived their brush with horrific death, the Firewall Sentinels are poised to carry out a robbery on the Ashoka 22, a maglev train carrying a hypercorp’s secret cargo.

Rogue Trader Episode 2 – Warp Incursion

DeepSpaceBanner

Adventures in the grim darkness of the far future continue. Following his successful salvaging of The Emperor’s Bounty, Siegmund Schoenerberg receives a vox transmission that stands out from all the usual spam mail and advertisements. An old servant of his great grandfather’s is somehow, someway still alive, and also incredibly old. But no matter, he’s got an old relic that needs to fall into the hands of the last survivor of the Schoenerberg dynasty. A relic with coordinates to an old treasure ship Siegmund’s great grandfather investigated decades upon decades ago . . .

What they don’t expect is warp shenanigans and the fallout that follows.
